Unknown Itinerant Painters

Tretyakov Gallery, Lavrushinsky Lane, 10, halls 49–54
november 23 may 19

The generation of itinerant painters re-discovered the art of drawing and watercolor. Graphic arts are not for the public, it is a technique “for oneself,” which gives absolute freedom of self-expression. In that kind of art, famous and renowned painters come across as completely different — unfamiliar and, literally, “unknown artists.”

For instance, striking is the power of I.N. Kramskoy’s coloristic gift, which was never used in painting but found an outlet in skillfully executed variegated watercolor landscapes. The 1860s were a time when landscape started to see a sepia evolution represented at the exhibition by works of L.F. Lagorio, A.P. Bogolyubov, F.A. Vassiliev and I.I. Levitan. They are all distinguished by the virtuosity of performance based on a profuse variety of brushwork techniques. To a large extent, a new upswing in drawing and watercolor at the turn of the 20th century was associated with the career of P.P. Chistyakov and was later pursued by his students — V.I. Surikov and V.A. Serov.

All in all, the exhibition will have about 200 works by I.E. Repin, V.A. Serov, I.I. Levitan, I.I. Shishkin, V.I. Surikov, I.N. Kramskoy and other artists.
